The Sassari-Olbia trunk road is the main inland link in the north of Sardinia, uniting the western and eastern parts.

The first section, with a length of approximately 9,300 m, provided for the construction of two lanes in each direction, a traffic divider, two roadside verges (one external and one internal) and three junctions.

Drainage system design requirements

During the design phase, particular attention was paid to the collection of rainwater. In particular, the designer and client wanted a system that could be easily installed, easy to inspect, with a secure fastening of the gratings without causing accidents, but above all stable and load-resistant.

Solution provided by HAURATON

In view of the designer’s requests, HAURATON’s team of experts decided to propose the FASERFIX KS range of channels as a solution.


FASERFIX KS channels with ductile iron gratings offer maximum stability, safety and drainage efficiency.

  • Fibre-reinforced concrete: extremely durable and robust

  • Time and cost savings: the SIDE-LOCK system saves 90% of the time needed to remove and fix gratings compared to traditional bolt fastenings

  • Fire resistance class A1 (non-combustible) according to DIN 4102 (local standards may differ)

  • Additional protection against longitudinal movements
